Results of the Cork BHAA 'Novartis' 5 km Road Race - Wed 6th Aug 2008
A record crowd of 416 runners turned out for this 5 km road race in Ringaskiddy. It was obvious from early on that the numbers were going to be high when the Novartis car park was full to capacity. 416 is a huge number for what is just a local 5 km road race. Looking at some of the results of the Dublin BHAA, they don't anything near 400 runners for their races. Why are we getting 400+ down here when they are getting around the 250 mark up in Dublin?

Note....There is a slight error in the results in that they mention that the next BHAA race, the ARMY/NAVY 5 Mile is on the 20th of August at 8:00pm. Please note that the race starts at 7:30pm!!
"Would just like to congratulate the BHAA on the speed of the results from last nights race, they took a bit of stick not to long ago about how slow results were and fair play to them for having them out today less than 24 hours after the race. Well done to all involved............John Dunphy, Midleton AC"
